So, I wasn’t going to run today (was going to rest this darn calf) but all of a sudden I found myself putting on running clothes and heading out the door. I didn’t even think about it. This is what happens when you’re a creature of habit- you crave consistency. •
<><><><><>
I decided to just run whatever pace felt good. It was nice not to think about going slow enough or fast enough to hit certain paces. I just got to run. Oh the joy that running brings! Nothing like it! <><><><><>
Also, this week my house is actually clean and I’m caught up on work! This is what happens when you aren’t super tired from hard marathon training workouts! It’s crazy!

Random non-running question: Am I the last person on earth to see the movie “Best in Show?” Oh my gosh- I laughed until I cried! ><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><

Snowy and cold run today. I felt like I was on an obstacle course leaping over icy patches. Still taking it easy. Everything is feeling back to normal now except my right calf. This was the same one that gave me issues after my marathon in October. It’s just super tight. I’m going to really baby it the rest of this week and hope it’s back to normal soon! I feel like a hot fire, the Olympics, and cocoa are in store for tonight!

This is my, “Wow I’ve worked out a lot of tightness today and I still have a ways to go face”😳. ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️
Foam rolling, @rollrecovery, a ball (I use a tennis ball), and the infamous stick are all good ways to stretch out and break up your fascia! I’ve recently been introduced to this amazing tissue, so I thought I’d share some of my newfound knowledge with you all (I’m a geek who digs this kind of stuff🤓). Here goes:
▪️Fascia is a thin collagen sheath of fibrous tissue that encases pretty much everything! It wraps, divides, and permeates your muscles, your blood vessels, your organs, and your nerves. Everything is encased in it! It’s continuous webbing! Pretty cool!
▪️Your fascia gets rigid and adhesions in it from all sorts of things- dehydration, overuse, sitting for long periods of time, etc. ▪️
▪️To keep your fascia happy (which means keeping you more mobile and running injury free) you need to treat it well! Drink lots of water, take frequent breaks if you have a desk job to get up and move, stretch it out, roll, massage, take warm baths, and mix up your workouts so that you get varying movement and the fascia can stretch in new directions.
▪️Your fascia transmits pain and sensory receptors. When it’s in a state of distress, the fibers thicken to protect the muscle below. If you can’t pinpoint why your achy or tired or stiff- it could be your fascia that needs some TLC.
▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️
There ya have it- another cool thing about our miraculous bodies (which in my opinion are pretty dang awesome)!

Owwwwwww! That’s what I have to say about how I feel today, but in a GOOD way.
____________
I downloaded my Garmin and realized that I had just over 5,000 ft elevation loss on my 20 miler Saturday! That was almost twice of my last marathon (St. George) and also I ran 20 sec faster per mile than the marathon! Needless to say, I feel like I just ran a marathon!
__________
Today I did all the good things (thankful for the day off) by stretching, foam rolling, taking an Epsom salt bath, and I even got some dry needling done at the PT. I jogged slowly 3 little miles on the treadmill at an incline (because even going down the stairs hurts).
__________
My plan is to take it easy this week and then hit it hard again next week. I’ll likely do one more tough downhill like this in about a month- but other than that It’ll be the normal ups and downs around here.
___________
Happy Monday and President’s Day!

Well that was sure interesting! 20 mile downhill canyon run with my hubby bunny hopping me in the car to make sure I was safe 💜. I swear I saw a wolf (hubs doesn’t believe me), heard lots of gunshots (was just hopping they weren’t coming in my direction), was run off the road a few times by cars going way too fast around the turns, and started in a whole different world weather-wise than when I finished (35 mph gale winds at the top and a feel of 13 degrees and 50 degree sunshine at the bottom)! I acquired a new huge blister on my toe, super sore and tight legs, awful chaffing under my sports bra, and also a huge smile for a job well done! All in all I’d call it a success! •
65 miles and 3 hrs of yoga to wrap up the week. Looking forward to a rest day tomorrow!

8 easy-paced miles after a day of talking about school choice to legislatures at the state capitol. •

Listened to a British marathon podcast during this run and laughed a lot because I didn’t know half of what they were talking about (I guess I need to brush up on the lingo before we go to London). •

‼️Important question alert🚨‼️ Have you ever eaten or given away all sugar in your house with the intent of being better and then been so desperate for a sweet that you literally ransacked your water belt for a chocolate Gu❓ I’m asking for a friend 😩.

Nothing fancy about this run- just medium pace/medium amount of miles on this Thursday morning. My goals this week have been to get in more miles and to hit two main key workouts, speed on Monday ✔️and a 20 miler at a quicker pace on Saturday. So far, so good! 🔸
🔸
I do want to say that my yoga, stretching, and foam rolling are helping a ton this training cycle! I’ve been doing really good in those areas. However, my nutrition and water intake are not going so well. I am trying, but need to try a lot harder in these areas. 🔸
🔸
Yesterday after my windy run- I was so depleted (hadn’t had lunch) and so dehydrated (hadn’t been drinking near as much lately) that I bonked hard when I got home. I was nauseous and light headed and really thought I was going to pass out. Luckily my son was home and got me a bowl of cereal. After a few bites, I could feel my blood sugar go back to normal. It’s so tricky sometimes to remember to do all of the right things! I hadn’t thought an easy 10 miler would be so hard- but that wind sucked up every ounce of energy I had and then some. Luckily I was fine after 30 min and my run this morning felt awesome!

💕Happy Valentine’s Day!!💕
10 miles in 20+ mph winds was no joke today. My recovery run was not a recovery 😱. Oh well, got some resistance training in! In the spirit of the holiday I compiled my favorite 5 romantic running moments in TV/movies. Here they are:
💕
5️⃣Love Actually- Samuel has to sneak through security and run after the girl of his dreams at the airport.
4️⃣The Wedding Singer- Adam Sandler runs after Drew Barrymore at the airport and sings a made up song to her to win her back!
3️⃣ When Harry Met Sally- Billy Crystal finally realizes he loves Meg Ryan and has to run to find her at a NY Eve party.
2️⃣Friends- Ross runs all across town (even to 2 airports) to find Rachel and tell her not to go to Paris because he loves her.
1️⃣Hitch- Will Smith chases after Eva Mendes’ car to tell her, “I’m just as scared as you are!”
💕
So you see, many many couples in movie/TV history would not have made it if it weren’t for their ability to run. Running is romantic! 😂💕
PS- chocolates are good recovery food right??

8 easy miles- even though they didn’t feel easy- my legs, back, and hamstrings are SO tight right now. I’m rolling and stretching like crazy! Gotta love marathon training!

Ok, so awhile ago I did a post about embarrassing moments. I don’t know why, but I just think there are so many funny and embarrassing things that oftentimes happen on runs! I’m going to share one of mine and I’d love to hear any of your stories as well! It’s only a Tuesday, and I think we all could use a good laugh!

When I ran my first 50K a few years ago I had no idea what to expect, I just showed up with some fluids, some gels, and my shoes. When I took off I noticed that people were going a nice conversational pace- so I fell in behind a few guys hoping to join their conversation. One of the guys was wearing a kilt. In my experience, people wear all sorts of costumes to races, so I just assumed it was a costume. I ran up to him and said, “Hey, do you have bagpipes under there?” If you know me, I do not have a dirty mind- I was just trying to be funny by bringing up his “costume” and starting a conversation. It didn’t even cross my mind that there was any other connotation to my remark. He looked at me really strangely and said, “no, I’m from Scotland and this is what I run in.” He had a legitimate accent. . . then he took off to get away from me. Later, I saw him after the race, when I went to talk to him, he looked like he hadn’t seen me and started off into the opposite direction. I told my friend what had happened and she started laughing and told me he probably thought I was hitting on him. I was embarrassed that I had thought it was a costume and also embarrassed that I had said something that could be taken like I was a pervert!

Ok, don’t make me feel like I’m the only weirdo, you’ve got to have something embarrassing!

Today was quite the day! I had jury duty and the courthouse was an hour away. They didn’t end up needing me, but it was a 4 hour ordeal by the time I got home. I had quite a bit of work to catch up on- so ended up doing my run on the treadmill this evening. Here was the WO:

5 easy miles today in the midst of some frost. A storm is coming! Tomorrow I’m shooting for a progression run, but I’m thinking its going to have to be on the treadmill. Any Netflix/Hulu suggestions? I’m needing something semi-inspirational to get some speed in!
